Unexpected Visitor at Tubu Hide, Okavango Delta
The Jao Concession of the Okavango Delta is a remote and beautiful area where wildlife sightings are often exciting and unexpected. However! On New Year's day guests on their evening drive were arriving at their sundowner spot when all of a sudden one of the passenger enquires "Is that a stuffed toy on the hide?". Alas it was not, and to the great surprise (although not as great as if they had discovered it face to face!) a magnificent male Leopard was relaxed on the hide and enjoying the sun setting himself, rather selfishly. Sightings are not always this easy, but what a great way to start the new year!
